  4. You did great getting to where you were and coming on here to report, no apology needed.
    Like you said binging is key, you’ve made great progress, as long as you keep it to a single reset you’ve still made progress.

    We are still APs, rise and rise again:)

    JK Emezi on rest

    "Hi brother,

    I sent myself to bed early the other night. I had been in a bad, bad mood all day. As if we haven’t been spending enough time together lately, a few rainy days forced us to keep even tighter quarters than usual. My anxiety shows up as irritability at times and I was a walking, talking storm cloud, shedding my own showers all around me.

    All these years into my journey - I’m still learning and still growing. I still need reminders to tune in to what my body and brain are telling me. My inner storm was telling me that I needed to rest - both physically and mentally.

    When it comes to storms, we can bury our heads in the sand and ignore the warnings or we can listen, prepare, and do what is needed to prevent further damage. That was why I sent myself to bed. The combination of being stuck inside, working 14-16 hour days, family responsibilities, and the sleep deprivation that came with it, was threatening to turn my little storm cloud into a destructive hurricane if I didn’t heed the warnings and do some damage control.

    Years ago, I ignored the warnings of pushing myself too much and end up relapsing to porn and masturbation. The lack of sex drive warnings, the persistent anger bubbling to the surface and staying with me all day, the “I can’t believe that watched THAT” warnings, so many warnings, yet, I continued doing what I had always done.Thinking that "willpower" and "positive thinking" would save me.

    That didn’t work then for quitting porn and it wouldn’t work now for changing my mood. My body and brain were screaming at me that this wasn’t working. They needed a break. I turned off my phone. Shut down my laptop. Took a warm shower and I went to bed. I wrote in my journal. Reading a little bit of a fiction book allowed my brain to turn off and my body to relax.

    Ignoring the storm won’t mean it misses you, but preparing for dark clouds ahead can mean getting through the storm unscathed.

    Your brother in this struggle,

    J.K “Weather the storm” Emezi

    I can only speak about my experience when I say that my PMO addiction has cost me so much and it is the absolute primary addiction I’m abstaining from, before addressing other issues. PMO is dangerous and I’m clear that quiting PMO is the number one priority in my life.

    I’m sad remembering the number of times I dove back into PMO “temporarily”, only to come back up for air and realize years had passed. Years! Just like that.

    Every single day you have left is a precious gift.

    I wish you well my friend. We will be here when your ready to return, and I hope it will be sooner rather than later.

    Still on Day 0. I had a brief thought about giving into the chaser effect, but then I thought better of it. I woke up feeling shitty this morning which always happens after a relapse the previous night. Now at least I am feeling better and I am back on the horse again and riding away from the abyss, though it is still rather close. Am I disappointed to have made it to Elf stage only to relapse? Yes, of course, but I made it 31 days without PMO and for that I am proud. Once I make it to 32 days, everything will be a record again, but it is a slow climb until then.

    Best,
